The winner of the Dryden District Chamber of Commerce’s $12,000 Win This Space contest Morgan Shepherd has opened the doors on her store Little Mod Nest.

The new business at 26 Earl Avenue boasts modern and earth friendly products for both mother and baby.

Shepherd says she has been very busy since the opening last Wednesday but that it is a big relief to be moved in. 

“We completely painted the entire space, we have a store front, a place to come and feed and change your baby; I also have a sewing studio here for my own products,” said Shepherd. “The first day was super busy all day it was almost overwhelming, the next few days have been a little slower but still plenty of people coming in just to say their congratulations and say they are happy for me, the judges have come in and it’s been wonderful, I’m super happy how with everything has come together.”

Shepherd plans to hold a grand opening in April and that she will keep customers updated on future workshops. She hopes the Little Mod Nest will be a spot for moms to come and relax while they are downtown. 

The store offers unique gifts as well as custom orders for baby showers and other events. 

Shepherd says she been flattered by all the support and she is happy to meet everyone at her new downtown location.
